Gary Holt joined Exodus in 1981 shortly after their formation, and has been the band's main songwriter ever since. Holt has performed on every Exodus album, and is considered highly influential in the world of thrash metal. In 2011, he began filling in for Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman at live shows, and became the band's full-time co-guitarist as of 2013, while remaining a member of Exodus. Godfather of Thrash!! Gary Holt is known as the "Godfather of Thrash Metal" for good reason: the style he helped develop in the early 80s with Exodus has echoed through the decades and continues today with his work in that band as well as in his newer role as a member of Slayer.
